Absolutely, without a doubt.

Unfortunately, managers get really silly in the offseason. I doubt Jokinen signs anywhere for the "right" price. It will almost certainly be the "wrong" price. Here's my guess. 5 years (for Jokinen), front loaded, 4 million dollar cap hit contract with a limited no trade clause. About a million less than his cap hit now, while making no less money for the first 3 years. Someone will offer that up. Whether it is Burke or not. Then again, Alex Tanguay (fortunately) got a lot less then he expected, I think after a weak year in Montreal. And is having trouble living up to THAT.
